The cardiac conduction system is formed of histologically and electrophysiologically distinct specialized tissues uniquely located in the human heart. Understanding the anatomy and pathology of the cardiac conduction system is imperative to an interventional electrophysiologist to perform safe ablation and device therapy for the management of cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure. The current review summarizes the normal and developmental anatomy of the cardiac conduction system, its variation in the normal heart and congenital anomalies, and its pathology and discusses important clinical pearls for the proceduralist.
